Banned from Walmart

A girl I work with emailed this to me. I thought it was funny!!
FROM WAL MART........ ...

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on
Her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found
Shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally
Unfortunately, my wife is like most women - - she loved to
Browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the
Following letter from the local Wal-Mart.

Dear Mrs. Samsel,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing
quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this
behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from
the store. Our complaints against Mr. Samsel are listed
below and are documented by our video Surveillance cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put
them in people's carts When they weren't looking.

2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go
off at 5-minute Intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor
leading to the women's Restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an
official voice, "Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away."

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put
a bag of M&M's on Layaway.

6. August 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR"
sign to a carpeted area.

7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department
and told other shoppers he'd Invite them in if they would
bring pillows and blankets from the bedding Department.

8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began
crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and
used it as a mirror While he picked his nose.

10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting
department, he asked the clerk Where the antidepressants were.

11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while
loudly humming the " Mission Impossible" theme.

12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his
"Madonna look" by using Different sizes of funnels.

13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people
browsed through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

14. October 21: When an announcement came over the
loud speaker, he assumed a fetal Position and screamed

And last,
But not least ..

15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door,
waited awhile, then Yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no
toilet paper in Here!"

Fall Cook Out!

I cannot believe that we have been in Amelia for over two years and this is the first time I have had my brother and his family out. What a loser sister/sister n law i am. Anyways, I finally had them out. I not only had them but I had the Rivards, Martins, and Morgans. Between all of us, excluding Mike and Jan, there were 16 children. We had awesome weather!! The guys pitched horse shoes while the women just sat around and chit chatted. When the sun went down, Barry started a fire. We laid blankets out and sat chairs around the fire. We made smores and had a really relaxing evening.
Thanks everybody for coming. We had a great time!! See ya'll in October and the state police guy's house!!!

Our trip to wild and wonderful west virginia

What a great time we had. We had two sets of three generations that went this year. How many churches can say that. I absolutely love being with my mom like that, and this year I got to enjoy and share this meeting with my daughter. Here are a couple of pictures.

Wild and Wonderful West Virginia

Tomorrow a few ladies at our church will head out to Dr Jeff Owens church. This will be my daughter's first one. She is looking so forward to it. I am so excited for her to bond with all of us. We will actually be having two sets of three generations going. How many churches can say that? God is so good!
I will however be missing Candy and Angie on this trip.
Well I will take pictures and post them when I get back.
Hebrews 4:16


Seven years ago something happened in this country that we will never be able to forget; the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. There was also another event that made a lasting impression in history and that was Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. He sacrificed His life so that we could have an enjoyable life. “I come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”(John 10:10). Therefore, we must take advantage of every opportunity we are given to live our lives to the fullest! Be Blessed!!!
I am so thankful for that someone is out there fighting for my freedom so I can love those little ones that God has blessed my life with. God is so good! All the time!!
I am a nobody telling everybody about a SOMEBODY that can Save anybody.
